Menu Plan Monday: Week of May 4, 2015

Although I successfully sauteed Kale Sprouts for last week's healthy dish of the week, I was extremely disappointed in how they came out. Kale Sprouts turned out to be just as bitter as Brussels sprouts, just with more of a leafy texture. Instead of following the directions on the package, I would have been much better off either roasting them or shredding and caramelizing them on the stove. Oh well, live and learn!

This week, I am going to try cooking - or more accurately, baking - with spelt. Alternative flours intimidate me, but I am going to give this Martha Stewart recipe for spelt brownies a try.

As for the rest of the week, I am going to try to keep things simple as I am feeling behind and overwhelmed again (a feeling that seems to come in cycles, no matter what adjustments and changes I make!). Here's my plan for this week:

Breakfast - Brownie Waffles
Dinner - Chicken Cobb Salad, garlic bread

Breakfast - Cereal
Dinner - Salmon Furikake, rice, some kind of veggie

Breakfast - Blueberry Muffins
Dinner - Farfalle with Mushrooms, sauteed spinach, garlic bread

Breakfast - Toast
Dinner - Ham & Broccoli Spirals, sweet potato fries

Breakfast - Cereal
Dinner - Spinach & Artichoke Dip with Pita Chips, Crudite and Sausage

Saturday Dinner: Dinner out

Sunday Dinner: Dinner out {I think! not exactly sure what we're doing for Mother's Day yet}
